About the event

This international symposium will cover novel aspects on inflammation, microbiome and immunometabolism, related to the understanding of innate immune responses.  An international group of experts in the field will present their work, including Charles Dinarello, Luke’O’Neill, Ramnik Xavier, Joachim Schultze, Mihai Netea, Alberto Mantovani, Eicke Latz, Leo Joosten, Douglas Golenbock, Peter Pickkers, Robert Sauerwein, Bart-Jan Kullberg, Reinout van Crevel, Ronnie Apte, Triantafyllos Chavakis, Herbert Tilg, Thirumala Kanneganti, Mihaela Lupse, Evangelos Giamarellos, Tom van der Poll, Dan Littman and Jos van der Meer.
 
In addition, oral presentations will be chosen from the submitted abstracts, and a ‘Best Oral Presentation Prize’ and ‘Best Poster prize’ will be awarded.
 
We would like to invite colleagues in the field to join us in this very exciting scientific meeting. The deadline for abstract submission is June 1st, and for registration is July 15th, 2018. Registration is 100 euros and includes registration, lunches and the welcome reception. There will be a limit of 300 participants for the conference.
